More Urban Living News
It's great news to see the Urban Core revitalized. While downtown living certainly isn't going to be for everyone (the target is obviously YPs and Empty Nesters), a strong and thriving downtown is better for the entire region. The stronger and safer Cincinnati is, the more attractive Cincinnati and N.KY suburbs are going to be. I have great hopes for the continued resedential boom, and for things like the Fountain Square redesign. Soon we need to see some of the ammenties come to the urban area like grocery, delis, restaurants, etc that maintain the same hours as suburban equivalents.

CinWeekly has put together an impressive 3 day lineup of local original live music on the Cin Stage. I'm impressed by the support the local music scene. Should be great. Some of the highlights (Click to Listen): The Sundresses, Kentucky Struts, Heartless Bastards, Clabbergirl, Swarthy Band, Stapletones, Moth. You can also check out an mp3 sampler of all the CinStage bands.

Sunday's at the Market - Success
Once all the Esse Strassen vendors are open and there are places to sit and eat, what a great Sunday afternoon it will make... head on down in the early afternoon (perhaps after church), grab a bite to eat at one of the restaurants south of the market, catch the music, and then get your grocery shopping out of the way with some of the freshest produce, and best meat you'll find. Who says Cincinnati isn't interesting?
